Atlanta Real Food is run by the Atlanta area chapter leaders of The Weston A. Price Foundation. Here you will find the latest news from local farmers, get information on how to properly prepare real foods, and stay up to date on local events.
Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm has been a huge supporter of this organization from the onset!
Once again he's helping us out by joining up with a few others to teach a workshop next week at a farm in Oregon, donating all funds to the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund in the ongoing food freedom battle.
We are so grateful for his support and his words:
When America cares as much for food freedom as it does gun freedom, we'll have a more balanced civilization.
I don't know any organization doing more to protect the freedom of food choice in America than the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF). Most people have no clue what food freedom is because the supermarkets are full of bright, stuffed, processed packages.
But where is the raw milk? The cottage-industry charcuterie? The homemade pot pies and backyard-processed and -cured ham or bacon? Homemade pickles?
The list of criminalized products since the government started telling us what we could and could not sell is quite long. That prohibition list represents the yearnings of a host of innovative entrepreneurial farmers desperate to enter the food marketplace but are denied due to industrially facilitated regulations.
Furthermore, we as consumers are denied the opportunity to procure the food of our choice from the source of our choice, to ultimately nourish our 3-trillion-member internal bacterial microbiome with nourishing fuel.
The FTCLDF stands as a protector and defender of these freedoms. For several years, Polyface has hosted an annual fundraiser for the nonprofit, which offers real time 24/7/365 legal counsel to its members when we are harassed, tyrannized, or bamboozled by food police and bureaucrats.
This year, we needed some time off and wanted to encourage others within this network to step up.
Charlotte Smith of Champoeg Creamery stepped up.
Now we need to support her. Please use the link below to see where the event is in Oregon. I'm donating my time to go out and support this effort; please join me, won't you? Let's keep food liberty cooking on the front burner of our lives.
